Conference Speakers & Abstracts
Work-Applied Learning (WAL) incorporates the features of Work-Based Learning (WBL) and is grounded in a fused Action Research method and Action Learning process (ARAL). It is the addition of the ARAL approach which leads to not only individual learning by the managers and team learning, but also organisational learning, knowledge management and change, as managers and their teams, plan, act, observe, reflect, evaluate and validate their work based projects through the action research cycles of WAL.
